Full Update from

As of June 8, 2021

Hi everybody,

 

It seems like forever since we’ve been able to meet. Well, I have good news. Phase 1 of coming out of lockdown begins this Friday and allows churches to meet at 15% capacity. We are excited to again be meeting live.

 

All languages will have live services starting this Sunday.

 

We will still have to wear masks for a while, social distance, and register online to manage how many can fit with the 15% allowed. But, we are meeting.

 

As before, the English and the Spanish will have services at both 9 and 11.

Our Arabic and Chinese will only meet at 11 am as before.

 

Each Tuesday afternoon we will open the web site for reservations. Just go to www.westparkchurch.ca and you’ll see the registration buttons. You will need to pre-register. And if for some reason after you pre-register you can’t come, please un-register to make room for someone else.

 

We hope you can join us this Sunday, unless you have a medical reason to not come, or if you are just not yet comfortable to come yet. That’s ok. We will still provide a quality online experience each Sunday for you.

 

Two final things.

 

Our hearts are heavy for the experience of loss by the Muslim family that was intentionally killed this past Sunday and our hearts are heavy for the loss that our community is experiencing. No one should face this form of hatred for their religious beliefs. We are praying for deep healing for all those affected by this tragedy.

 

We want to find out how best we can respond and help and we are doing our due diligence this week, and next week the board of elders will meet to decide about our best course of action.

 

Please be praying for the family.

 

A verse I want to leave you with is this from the book of Isaiah.

Is. 43:18 “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.

 

I believe the best is yet to come for WP. God bless. Hope to see you Sunday
